Is my car donation made in Maryland tax deductible?

What paperwork do I need to donate my vehicle in Maryland?

In most cases we need the title to the vehicle. But, if you do not have title papers you can apply for a replacement title before donating your vehicle. Please visit the Maryland DMV web site to obtain the necessary forms before donating: Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration.

 How do I release the liability of my donated vehicle in Maryland?

 In Maryland you are required to remove your license plates and turn them in at your local MVA in order to cancel the registration.  This is required before you can cancel your insurance. Failure to do so can result in continued billing by your insurance company until you do turn them in.

You can contact the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration with any questions you have about how to release the liability of your donated vehicle. For additional information, please refer to the Maryland MVA web site: Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration.

 What types of vehicles do not require a title in Maryland?

Mopeds and snowmobiles do NOT require a title in Maryland.

 What do I do with my title when donating my vehicle in Maryland? 

The title of the vehicle must be properly assigned to the charity. This is handled in the same manner as if you were actually selling the vehicle. Be sure to fill in the name and the address of the charity under the “Assignment of Ownership” section to properly complete transfer of ownership of the vehicle to the charity. Some charities may request that you leave the new owner information blank, but this leaves you at risk for future problems since the title would then be considered “open” by the MVA and unassigned. It may also affect your tax deduction for the donation.

The odometer mileage must be filled in on the “Maryland Certificate of Title."

If the giver has financed the vehicle, the charity will need the vehicle’s “Maryland Notice of Security Interest Filing” showing the vehicle has been paid off. If that document is not available, please request a letter on the financial institution’s letterhead stating that they hold no security interest and have it signed by the financial institution’s authorized agent. The letter should also include the date of the loan’s creation, the amount, the date of its release, the name and address of the debtor, and a full vehicle description (year, make, and vehicle identification number).

Do not leave the license plates on the vehicle. After the title is transferred, remove the license plates from the vehicle and return the plates to the MVA unless you are transferring the plates to another vehicle. You may only transfer the plates if the new vehicle is titled in the same name and the new vehicle classification is the same as the old vehicle. Keep your receipt from the MVA when you return your plates. Keep insurance coverage on the vehicle until the date the plates are returned to the MVA or transferred to the new vehicle.

Cancel the vehicle insurance for the donated vehicle. To avoid penalty fees, cancel the vehicle insurance only after the plates have been returned to the MVA or transferred to another vehicle.
